Description Matthias Saou 2006-03-06 12:17:43 EST
While tring to recompile some gnome1/gtk1 applications on FC5test, I got
errors about -lSM being missing.

Rather than build rerquiring it explicitly in the packages I'm building, I'd
prefer to have it added where it belongs, which seems to be gnome-libs-devel :

# gnome-config --libs gnomeui
-rdynamic -L/usr/lib64 -lgnomeui -lart_lgpl -lgdk_imlib -lSM -lICE -lgtk -lgdk
-lgmodule -ldl -lXi -lXext -lX11 -lgnome -lgnomesupport -lesd -lasound
-laudiofile -lm -lglib

All other libraries seem to get pulled in properly (some by gtk+, maybe by

Solution : Add "Requires: libSM-devel" to the -devel gnome-libs sub-package.

I'd really appreciate if this quickie could get fixed in time for FC5, as it
would avoid putting some (normally) unneeded build requirements in gnome/gtk1
packages (diradmin and gtktalog from Extras in my case).
Comment 2 Ray Strode [halfline] 2006-03-28 11:47:44 EST

So this missed the FC5 boat unfortunately.  Would it be helpful if I fixed it
now and pushed an update?
Comment 3 Matthias Clasen 2006-04-18 23:20:05 EDT
not worth fixing in fc5, imo. 
And Gnome 1 is already gone in rawhide.
Comment 4 Matthias Saou 2006-06-26 07:49:35 EDT
Closing as WONTFIX since indeed this is not worth fixing in FC5. If gnome-libs
ever appears in Extras for FC6+, I'll reopen/reassign this bug or simply make
sure that it includes the fix.
